Show Hidden is a small utility that will display all hidden folders, and files if you wish, on your computer. This program will scan all of your fixed and removable drives for folders and files that have the Hidden attribute. When Show Hidden is finished it will create a log that contains a list of all the hidden files and folders that were found.
Show Hidden is useful if you are concerned that your computer was accessed without your permission or knowledge. Using this tool you can quickly scan your computer for hidden files and folders that an unauthorized users or hacker created to store their tools or other files. Using the generated log file, you can quickly determine if any of the folders look suspicious or out of place and then investigate further.
In order to properly run Show Hidden, you will need to run it as an Administrator. This will allow the program to scan all folders and files on your computer. To start the program, just double-click on the downloaded show-hidden.exe file and the program will start scanning your drives. If you wish to list hidden files as well, you need to use the -f command line argument. To use the -f argument, start the program from an elevated command prompt or create a shortcut for it using that argument.
